Say Yes to Brights

Yes, you can do bright colors in a bedroom. Watch and see how to pull off the look with tricks from these three color schemes. 

Feminine Retreat

Use the color pink to give any bedroom a splash of feminine appeal. In this bedroom, fuchsia accents do just that. Soft blue walls, black-painted furniture, and crisp white bedding ensure the room looks calm and serene despite the striking contrast. Patterned accessories provide the room with another layer of playful personality.

Contrast is King

All-white walls can sometimes look cold and boring. But bold colors and playful patterns ensure this bedroom's blank canvas looks anything but dull. The modern print bedding, featuring hues of orange, yellow, and green, looks youthful and energetic. A contemporary-style painting hung above the fireplace adds more color and conveys unique personality.

Bright Spot

The walls, the headboard, and even the ceiling in this bedroom are drenched with personality and look-at-me style. The walls feature a bright peach colored grass-cloth wallpaper, which offers texture and subtle pattern. Striking green-and-white toile-pattern fabric dresses the headboard, the bed, and the window treatments. Wide stripes painted on the ceiling provide another layer of pattern and energetic color.

Pattern Panache

Use layers of pattern and color to give your bedroom unique personality and of-the-moment style. Here, a variety of patterns coordinate well because they’re generally all of the same scale and color palette. The calming blue hue that dominates the space makes the space look relaxing, while the striking orange accents lend contrast and energy.

Colorful Patina

Colorful vintage-inspired patterns give this bedroom classical appeal. The bed frame is upholstered with dreamy aquamarine fabric, which coordinates perfectly with the aquamarine-and-white patterned bedding. The black-painted bedside tables were given an aged look, which blends well with the room's vintage style. A beaded chandelier provides additional layers of color and texture.

Peachy Keen

The color peach is all grown-up in this stylish master bedroom. The peachy wall color creates a warm base for furnishings of crisp white. The clean-lined furniture looks understated and sleek. Accents in Kelly green lend bold contrast and ensure the peach hue doesn’t look too childish.

Fabulous Contrast

Incorporating a bold mix of colors is a surefire way to enliven any bedroom. In this bedroom, soft blues mingle expertly with warm oranges, which look energetic and stylish. Using blue as the predominant hue throughout the room keeps the space feeling calm and relaxing, but the bold orange accents offer a fun surprise.

Well Mixed

A plentiful mix of patterns and textures adds life to the neutral walls in this bedroom. The eye-catching, pink-and-white gingham fabric that covers the headboard stands out amongst the other patterns because it’s the largest in scale. The pink-and-white patterned bedding mingles expertly with nature-inspired print on the curtains and throws. Plush flokati pillows provide contrasting texture.

Wall-to-Wall Color

Bright blue walls form the base for this bold bedroom. Patterned accents provide additional layers of style and personality. The striking black-and-white upholstery on the headboard makes a dramatic style statement. Colorful chevron throw pillows on the bed look right on-trend, and coordinate well with the youthful wall color.

Pretty in Fuchsia

A bold patterned area rug forms the foundation for this stylish bedroom for two. The striking fuchsia hue of the rug makes its way onto other elements throughout the room, such as the headboards and bedding. A foundation of gray on the walls, bedding, and accents helps temper and refine the wild color.

Subtle Color

Warm off-white walls and soft lavender accessories make this bedroom look like a dream. Vintage-inspired furnishings, such as the shimmering chandelier and the pretty gold bedside table, add feminine appeal. Layers of fabric wrap the room with warmth and style. While color usage is far from overt, lavender on the bedding, drapes, and accessories introduces the right amount of color into the space.

Warm Ups

Wood-paneled walls and plush shag carpeting envelop this bedroom with style and warmth. The retro-inspired wall paneling looks up-to-date thanks to the room’s contemporary-look furnishings and playful patterned accessories. The brown-and-white ikat print bedding coordinates expertly with the shimmering gold medallion hung above the bed.

Key to Success

Contrast is key in this master bedroom, where deep blues mingle expertly with sunny yellow and crisp white. Tone-on-tone blue metallic wallpaper wraps the room with subtle pattern. The shapely white headboard features of-the-moment nailhead trim, which is echoed on the nearby bedside table. Accessories in soft yellow hues provide contrast and energy.
